Ted gets his skates on

01 Feb 2011

The Premier Ted Baillieu visited Docklands last month to promote a charity preview for 'Xanadu The Musical', which opens here next month.

Mr Baillieu teamed up with the star of the show Christie Whelan to promote a special preview on March 1 to raise money for the Queensland Premier’s Flood Relief Appeal.

Speaking at the promotion on January 14, Mr Baillieu encouraged Victorians to return the generosity of Queenslanders who had dug deep for Victorians affected by the Black Saturday fires two years ago.

“Please do for Queensland what Queensland did for us during the fires,” Mr Baillieu said.  “The rain may have passed, but the threat hasn’t.”

At the time of the announcement, erection of the Grand Xanadu Marquee was incomplete as some parts were trapped by floodwaters in Brisbane.  Xanadu is due to start on March 3 in the vacant area opposite Docklands Studio in Docklands Drive.
